Home After a Long Journey

They say you don’t appreciate something until you lose it.

Being on the road allows you to experience new things and constantly be on the move. But after a while you long for home. You long for the things that were once so familiar they became boring. You long for a familiar bed and familiar surroundings. Things are just so much easier back home because you know how things are done, how people act, what you’re suppose to do. But if you never had left, you wouldn’t know what you would miss.

The feeling of coming back home after a long journey is like taking a deep breath when you’ve been under water for so long. Sure you swam with exotic fish and was amazed by the beauty of the sea turtle but we all have to come back up for air sometime. To have both feet planted on the ground for a while, is what we need sometimes.

Instead of Waiting

She waits for the Sun to rise

before she begins her day

One day the Sun said “I’ll be late”

So she sat there in utter darkness

for hours…

for days…

because how late is late?

tired of waiting, she lights a candle

And learned to not give a shit when the Sun finally decided to come

I don't believe in soul mates...

I don't believe in soul mates.

I don't believe in one true loves. But I spend all my time writing stories of characters who have someone there for them.

Relentlessly there for them.

A crutch to lean on. A hand to hold. I spend all day writing characters worth dying for. Writing bonds that can't be broken.

Since I was young, it’s all I've ever wanted. But now, I don't believe in soul mates. Or one true loves. So I'll lay in the dream-like fog of my brain, and create a place where I can believe.

Thank you for the first submission. It’s funny how I believed that once I found a special someone to share my life with in a way I would be “saved”. I’d no longer feel lonely nor unhappy because there’d be someone there for me. But now that I actually have found someone I’ve realized what a fantasy that is. Sometimes I’ve never been more alone in my life. No one can save us but ourselves.
